Dr. Matthisen sees many back pain patients in our busy Anchorage chiropractic office. Many of our patients have some form of spinal dysfunction that is causing them pain and distress. Fortunately, Dr. Matthisen has found that spinal decompression treatment is an effective way to help these people.
Non-surgical spinal decompression is a treatment method that takes all of the positive benefits that one normally gets from chiropractic adjustments, traction, physiotherapy, exercise therapy, and myofascial release and integrates them all into one.
The goal of decompression is to keep you away from the surgeon's knife, and that is precisely what it's done for a number of people, as it has a documented 85% success rate.
A few of the issues spinal decompression helps with include generalized back pain, sciatica, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, compression fractures, and joint pain.
Spinal decompression works by reversing the effects of wear, tear, and the force of gravity that compresses the intervertebral discs in your neck and back. The movie below shows how it works to eliminate stress on your back and helps eliminate pain and disability.
If you live in Anchorage and you're struggling with back pain, spinal decompression therapy might be the answer. Call Dr. Matthisen today at (907) 349-4212 for a consultation or appointment.
